Smuggler's Cove is a nice hike that is a bit more than just a stroll out to Yakutania Point. It is still a very simple and well worn trail and it follows the coastline north toward Dyea. There are trails that continue past the cove, but nothing official. It's worth exploring up the big rock on the north side of the cove. If Yakutania Point wasn't enough, head to Smuggler's. If Smuggler's isn't enough of a hike, head up to the Dyea road and follow the AB Mountain Trailhead.
Directions: Follow the Yakutania Point route to the rocky plateau just before the privy and look for a trail leading off to the right. This trail goes through a mixed coastal forest to a grassy tidal inlet with the legendary name of "Smuggler's Cove". There is a picnic shelter and a privy at this peaceful site. return to Skagway by the route back through the forest or walk up the grassy slope to the dirt road. Turning left where the dirt road splits will take you to the Dyea Road, turning right will return you to exercise station #4 on the Yakutania Point Trail. You can continue on the AB Mountain Trailhead if you turn left up the Dyea Road.
